Flameside Chat episode #9 explores gratitude

Just in time for Thanksgiving, the newest episode of Flameside Chat focuses on gratitude. Sharing their insight about this timely topic are two of Centre College’s well-known and gracious experts in the field, Richard Trollinger, vice president for college relations, who focuses on philanthropy, and Norman Fischer ’95, parish priest of St. Peter Claver Catholic Church of the Diocese of Lexington, Ky., who focuses on religiosity.

On Tuesday, Nov. 24 at 7 p.m., Flameside Chat and its hosts opened the floor for the discussion of topics ranging from expressing gratitude, philanthropy as an expression of gratitude, religiosity and gratitude, and any other questions on viewers’ minds concerning the motivations behind philanthropy.

Flameside Chat is an interactive, participant-led broadcast that gives viewers the opportunity to return to a classroom environment without leaving the comfort of home. Hosts are scholars and real-world experts eager to share their knowledge and experience with online viewers. Watch the recorded episode on YouTube.
